I've been looking for this edger and ran over this. Did a SD search and did not see it. This is typically $75 new and while it's been cheaper at DTO here the shipping is free.

I've got an 80V cordless trimmer, Cobalt brand, from Lowes; it has the interchangeable head feature. However the product description at HD suggests this edger is intended for a gas-driven device. Anybody here try this on a battery-operated trimmer like my Cobalt? IS it effective or do you really need a gas trimmer to make it work well? TIA

I have that exact set up. The attachment capable Kobalt 80V trimmer with this edger. It works great and I've only ever needed to run it on slow setting.

I have both the hedge trimmer and old school blower attachment for my 18v brushless Ryobi and they work fine. I'll update you when I get my edger if you'd like. Or you could try it out and return it if you don't like it, this is coming from HD proper so in store return is available.

I have this attachment and use it with my RYOBI 40-Volt Lithium-Ion Cordless Attachment Capable String Trimmer. It works great.

I had this attachment for my Ryobi expand-it capable 40 volt trimmer. It would constantly overheat the unit and stop after a few seconds. I found it much more efficient to simply turn my trimmer sideways and use it as an edger in that regard. The 90 gauge(?) triple braided string is more than capable for my use.

This works fine with my 40V Ryobi trimmer. Just replaced the blade after 3 years (Home Depot, 9 bucks).

I used to run this edger attachment with a 40v Greenworks unit and it was fine. Battery life was shorter than the trimmer head, but what do you expect. Any battery powered power head that advertises "gas like power" should be fine.
All of that said, my instance of this attachment did eventually fail, with a cast part cracking. However parts were decently cheap and replacement was straightforward with hand tools. I'd give it 3.5 out of 5 stars.

Nice. I'm using an old rusty add on I bought from Facebook. Spent $25 on a dinosaurs electric weedeater with the edger. Sold the weedeater for $25 and kept the edger attachement. Will sell that for $30 so it'll be like I got this for $20. (Hopefully lol).

Thanks, OP, this is perfect. I've been meaning to get one that works with my Troy-bilt unit, and this lets me burn up a gift card that had just over $50 left on it. For some reason, Home Depot won't let you burn smaller gift cards online if a larger gift card covers the total any more.

That is what I do with my 18V brushless Ryobi, turn it sideways. Seems like this is quicker than having to change out attachments.

Are you saying that your Kobalt and Ryobi have interchangable heads? (at least for this setup)?

Yes. The Kobalt attachment capable trimmer takes all universal type attachments. Ryobi's attachments are universal type. TrimmerPlus is another brand that works (I have the pole saw attachment) as theirs are also universal style (internal shaft is square.) Other brands like Echo and Milwaukee are proprietary and will only work w/ their own power heads as the internal shafts of each of their attachments are different shapes.

I have the expand it edger and use it with my Ryobi 40v brushless. Mine does not overheat and shut off.

I have about 200ft of sidewalk so it has decent run time when you consider that I edge both sides at one go with little/no breaks, so close to 400ft.

I do use the string trimmer and turn it sideways to edge from time to time as well but nothing beats a clean edge from a blade edger. I'd say I string trim by turning it sideways for 2 or 3 weeks, then use the blade edger to "reset" it back. It takes me 45 seconds to swap it out, so super easy.
